While Dr. Stephen D. Livesay doesn't mind talk-
ing about his journey from college student to presi-
dent of Bryan College, he much rather would talk
about Bryan College's journey from 2003 to the
Lord's next milestone.
Dr. Livesay became Bryan's seventh president on
Feb. 1, succeeding Dr. William E. Brown who served
for 10 years before announcing his resignation to
become president of Cedarville University. Dr.
Livesay comes to Bryan from Belhaven College,
where he served as vice president for institutional
advancement for the past five years.
"Bryan College has a legacy of educating stu-
dents who are making a difference for Christ's king-
dom in all walks of life in all parts of the world," Dr.
Livesay said as he accepted the appointment of the
board of trustees in December. "As a Christian liberal
arts college, Bryan is poised to take a significant lead-
ership role and exert influence in engaging our cul-
ture with a Christian world and life view in both
thought and practice."
That evaluation didn't change after his first days
on the job, except to become stronger.
"I have been impressed by the students' abilities,
desire to learn, their desire for excellence. The stu-
dents I have talked with say they aspire to excellence
in a variety of professions. What this tells me about
the student body is that they think critically, and
that's not happening in many schools, Christian or
"It also speaks to the strength of the faculty and
administration. In things put forth by the adminis-
tration, students want to understand, to look at them
from various perspectives. I think this is what
William Jennings Bryan wanted when he called for a
school unapologetic in its faith in the Word of God,
yet not hesitant to inquire," he said.
Students weren't hesitant to inquire about their
new president, whether it was his initial introduc-
tion to the college community in January (one stu-
dent asked about his salvation experience; another
asked, "are you well-connected?") or an evening
with student leaders on their retreat ("He was sup-
posed to be with us an hour or so, but he stayed
until after midnight," one recalled).
What they learned is that Dr. Livesay taught and
coached in junior high and high school after gradu-
ating from Bob Jones University with a degree in
social studies education. He earned an M.A. degree
in U.S. history from Oakland University in
Michigan, and a Ph.D. degree in curriculum and
instruction with a cognate in history from the
University of Michigan. He taught at Liberty
University for six years before moving to Belhaven
College in Jackson, Miss., in 1994, where he taught,
served as dean of the adult studies program, associ-
ate vice president and, for four-and-a-half years, as
vice president for institutional advancement.
They also have learned that he has a heart to be
used by God. "One concept I have tried to adhere to
all my life is that God will use me today in whatever
way He sees fit," he told students during his first
"One concept I have tried to adhere to all my life is that God will use me today in whatever way He sees fit"

chapel message. He said much the same thing when he met with students
informally in January after his appointment by the trustees. During that
meeting, he said he became excited about the possibility of serving at Bryan.
"But if that was not what God wanted, that was fine, too."
Now that he's here, however, he's singing the praises of what he is dis-
covering about the entire Bryan family.
The students' intellectual curiosity reflects well on the efforts of their
professors, he believes. "The Bryan faculty know what they believe, so stu-
dents are not left with everything open-ended," he said. "Yet the inquiry
process allows students to think critically without giving up their spiritual experience.
"This is the kind of preparation students need to change the culture. They have to
have an understanding of trends, to think culturally, to be intellectually sound, so their
faith is a reasonable faith. They need this to have a reasonable, consistent dialogue with
people, to grapple with issues, and understand where other people are coming from.
This way, they earn the right to have a seat at the table. They are trained to think this
way. I think this is what a good liberal arts education is all about - thinking broadly
and deeply. This allows students to have a faith they own for themselves.
"This takes an administration willing to allow that kind of inquiry, actively requir-
ing it of students. The essence of a liberal arts education is to explore the depths of
each discipline, and as you do, you begin to see more of the Creator,
the source of all knowledge. The more rigorous, the more challeng-
ing the debate, the more we see this was part of God's mandate to
subdue the earth. That's what gives glory to God, because our
faith is strengthened and we have a greater vision to not just
engage our culture but to redeem our culture."
Along the way, Bryan students perform at the highest levels of
standardized tests. "In the Major Field Tests, Bryan students are
ranked not in the 50th or 75th percentile but in the 99th. They
have the ability to think. They have been exposed to academic
content, but also required to look to see what the real issues are.
Where else would you find value-added results like this? I
have begun to see this as something incredibly valuable,
something tremendously desirable for students, and I'd like
for us to be able to help other Christian schools have this
kind of experience."
While classroom instruction is vital to this process,
other Bryan distinctives are important as well.
'Bryan has a very strong mentoring /disciple-
ship practice on the part of all employ-
ees," Dr. Livesay said. "We don't
have employees just doing
their jobs, they are
involved in min-
istry to help
This is unique. I've
never seen this done in
this way on any campus."
At the same time, stu-
dents take an active role in
challenging their peers. "Iron sharpens iron; students engaging students is one of the
single most important defining parts of the college experience. This school invests
heavily in opportunities for young people to be engaged among themselves and in the
wider world. Break for Change and the World view Team are two examples of this.
Bryan places a premium on opportunities for students to engage one another in vari-
While he intends to maintain a strong academic position, Dr. Livesay is committed
to strengthen special programs such as the Center for Law and American Government
(CLAG) and the Center for Origins Research and Education (CORE), programs that
address particular areas of concern in today's society.
"American society is becoming post-Christian in many respects," he said. "This has
had a dramatic impact on our philosophy of government. The philosophy of govern-
ment historically centered on the idea that we could govern ourselves and needed little
human government because we had a higher accountability. Since we have in our wis-
dom as a nation moved beyond the Christian era, government has become a govern-
ment of polls and consensus with a lack of moral leadership — that is, morality which
stems from biblical principles.
"CLAG offers the opportunity to consider how we as Christians engage a political
culture in this vital area. Forums such as this allow Bryan and Bryan's friends to think
about where we are, how we got off track, and how to address these problems from a
CORE, on the other hand, goes even deeper to the heart of the issue. "Of all the
issues, there really are only two - naturalism or supernaturalism. We either believe we
are here for a divinely ordered purpose, that each one of us is a special creation hand-
crafted by God to do special work in His kingdom, or that we're here by chance.
Everything flows out of that argument. That's why it is important to have open discus-
sion where students explore these issues. This issue reaches to the ultimate questions:
Who am I? What is my purpose? Where am I headed?
"CORE can and does have a tremendous influence on our culture, and needs to
have a wider voice so individuals intellectually and scientifically can look at these
issues and be fully persuaded. This is what education is all about."
Strengthening what is here is critical, but so is moving ahead. The new president is
still working on details, but was quick to outline a challenging list of goals for the com-
ing year or so. Among these are broadening opportunities for adult learners through
the ASPIRE degree completion program, probing the possibilities of launching a mas-
ter's degree program in education, and fine-tuning the financial aid program to be able
to attract more high-quality students.
"I want to see the athletic training program attract and influence many students,"
he said. "It has a tremendous opportunity to influence our culture. We should have
accreditation for the program this coming year, and that would make us one of few
Christian colleges to offer certification in athletic training."
And as a longer-range goal, he would like to develop a program in the fine arts.
"The arts constitute such a critical role in our culture - they give expression to our cul-
As excited as Dr. Livesay may be about Bryan College, it's clear that he's even
more excited about his family joining him in Dayton. Mrs. Livesay and daughters Kara
and Katie will move into the president's home on the Bryan campus after Kara gradu-
ates from high school in Mississippi. Son Brent will join them when he completes his
spring semester at Cedarville College. (Please see a related story about Mrs. Livesay,

'orking Mom Becomes Bryan's First Lady
Corinne Livesay, Bryan's new First Lady, faces
more than simply moving to a new home - her own
career will change as she and her husband begin
focusing on the same institution.
"I've never been a first lady before," she said, "so
I'll be exploring the waters. One thing Fm looking
forward to is becoming more involved with my hus-
band's work. With Stephen at Belhaven and me at
Mississippi College, I couldn't get as
involved with his work as I would have
liked. Finally we will be in the same place.
"Fll deal with the same struggles
working moms face - to do enough for
the children, be supportive of my hus-
band, be more a part of the institution he
works for. The transition will bring a shift
Now, the "working mom" priorities
include her responsibilities at Mississippi
College in Jackson, Miss., where she is
assistant dean in the School of Business,
director of business internships, and
Her teaching career developed from a love for
her subject - business - and for her family. "Because
my priority is my family, I couldn't get into a 9-to-5
job. Teaching was right for the flexibility it offers,"
After graduating from Bob Jones University
with a degree in business education, she taught in
the high school where her husband taught, then
began teaching Saturday and evening classes at a
junior college after she earned her MBA degree.
When the family moved from Michigan to
Virginia, Corinne began teaching at Liberty
University. It was there that she took her first step
into the world of publishing as she agreed to review
a new business textbook. "I did the review and they

tion he works for."
liked what I did," she said. "They got me involved in
other projects." Later, after their move to Mississippi,
her publisher asked her to serve as developmental
editor for three college textbooks, and signed her to
write two books of her own.
"Since then it's been neat to see how God works
things out," she said. "In college textbook publishing,
companies are always merging or buying out other
companies. For example, at the main com-
pany I'm writing for now, the top man is
the same one I started out with 10 years
ago at another company."
The writing aspect of her career
allowed Corinne to be home for their chil-
dren when they were small and supple-
ment the family income at the same time.
That same commitment to the family is
playing a role in the move to Dayton.
Although Dr. Livesay will be at Bryan
throughout the week, the family won't
move into the president's home on cam-
pus until this summer, allowing daughter
Kara to graduate from her high school in
Mississippi this spring.
Their oldest child, Brent, is a first-year student
with enough hours to rank academically as a sopho-
more at Cedarville University. The biology major
was a National Merit Finalist who began the student
senate at his high school. He participated in
Mississippi's YMCA youth legislature and was
named the outstanding legislator. "He gets involved
in something and gives it his all. He's real focused,"
his mother said.
Kara plans to attend Union University in
Tennessee next fall as an elementary education
major. She was named to Who's Who Among
American High School Students, enjoys music and
drama, and is a runner on the cross-country team.
Katie, their youngest, is a high school freshman.
This past summer, she was one of four Mississippi
junior high school students selected to participate in
a national math competition held in Chicago. She
loves roller hockey and was chosen the
most valuable runner on her cross country
team last fall.
A special bonus with the move to
Dayton is that the drive time between
home and their son at college as well as to
the homes of Mrs. Livesay 's parents in
Virginia and Dr. Livesay's parents in
South Carolina will be cut in half.
Mrs. Livesay has no plans to teach
immediately following their move, as she
sees her role more focused on supporting
her husband in his new position and help-
ing Katie, particularly, adjust to a new
hometown. But she does intend to keep writing.
No doubt, she will find a way to establish her
own ministry similar to what she has done in
Mississippi. "I have taught a ladies' Sunday school
class for about eight years," she said. "Many of the
ladies have become dear friends, and we enjoy doing

Caverns among other places. A special
treat was when Dr. and Mrs. Livesay trav-

While the trip from Jackson to Dayton probably
doesn't qualify as a Livesay family vacation, it cer-
tainly offers its own brand of challenges, adventures,

family is anticipating as the Livesay family becomes

Baseball returned to Bryan College with a bang
Feb. 1, as the Lions won a double header on their
new field, sparked by a first-hit home run, to set the
pace for the new program.
A crowd of about 200 fans, including Nick Senter,
whose gifts were the impetus for bringing back the
sport after a 17-year layoff, was on hand to watch the
They saw a small, young team that Coach Preston Douglas
expects to play above others' pre-season expectations. Early in the
year, the coach noted those expectations. "Right now, no one fears
Bryan College. We have to go out and make them respect us," he
said in one of his regular e-mails to the team.
With only 20 players to begin the season - "we have lost one to
rotator cuff surgery and one has an eligibility question that hasn't
been settled yet" - he is concerned about pitching depth, but not the
training or work ethic of his squad. "We have three or four good
pitchers who can keep us in the game. We have some speed,
some good bats, and we're strong up the middle. But it's a ques-
tion of experience, and the only way to get that is to play."
Training has involved such non-baseball activities as visual
exercises and kickboxing - to strengthen particular muscle
groups baseball players use - and hitting weighted balls. "I'm
pleased with their efforts," he said. "We just need to play base-
While he's hoping for experience now, Coach Douglas is
looking toward the end of the season and the opportunity to
compete in the conference tournament. "By the time the tourna-
ment rolls around, I hope we can be a force to be reckoned
with," he said. "I do not believe any team will have better ath-
letes that we have. They will have more experienced players, but
not better athletes. I long for the day these baseball "cubbies"
turn into roaring Lions.
"I said from the first that my goal is a national championship.
I went to the college world series as a player and a coach, and
there's nothing like it. I want that for my players."

They did it again!
The Lady Lions basketball team returned to the NCCAA national
tournament for the second consecutive year, carrying a new best-ever
29-6 record, an improvement over last year's 25-8 worksheet.
Coach Matt Bollant is pleased with the team's performance and is
encouraged with the Lady Lions' season, despite falling in the
Appalachian Athletic Conference tournament.
"Our goal all year has been to be the best team we can be in
March," he said. "We don't just want to make post-season play; we
want to do well."
It has been apparent from the first of the season that the Lady
Lions would be a force to be reckoned with in the conference, and the
coach attributes much of that to team chemistry. "The team gets along
well, they believe in each other, there's a more unselfish attitude," he
said. "It's a lot more fun to be around each other when that's true."
One result of this attitude is that the team ranks at the top of the
conference in most statistics, especially in defense. "Championship
teams have been able to shut down their opponents late in the game,"
the coach said. "I feel we can do that, although we've been a little up
and down lately."
An obvious strength has been offense - the team is averaging
nearly 80 points per game, an average in the top 10
among NAIA schools in the country.
This year's success has been "very much a team
effort," he said. "I'm proud that I've seen every individ-
ual improve throughout the year. That's a credit to how
hard they have worked, how coachable they are."
He particularly complimented his only seniors,
Kimmie Hill and Holly Davis, for doing a good job in a
supporting role. "It's tough being a senior and not get-
ting a lot of playing time, but they have done a good job
Coach Bollant is looking toward next year as well, as
he recently signed Brittany Swanson, sister of Lady Lion
Lacey Swanson, to play post next year. "She could be one
of the most outstanding post players in Bryan history,"
he said. He's also looking for another player to strength-
en his squad and extend a growing tradition of success.

"Growing" might be a good way to describe the Lions' men's basketball
team this season as the young team battled to be a force in the conference.
Coach Morris Michalski said he feels "quite good about the season. The
kids by and large have been overachievers, and I love to coach overachiev-
ers. I am very proud of them."
Encouraging signs included knocking off nationally ranked Bluefield,
University of Virginia- Wise, Montreat and Lee - at Lee - and sweeping
their two games with Brevard, the defending conference champion.
Another huge boost to the team's confidence was defeating Milligan at
Milligan, the first time in 15 years. Overall the Lions finished 12-17, post-
ing three more conference wins than last season.
While there has been encouragement, the Lions also faced some trials in
a season heavy with nationally ranked teams. That, compounded by the
loss of three players at semester break, "our top three in scoring, assists,
and steals," forced the remaining players to dig deeper. "Amazingly, we
were better," Coach Michalski said.
The coach was particularly pleased with the performance of three of his
players, point guard Brandon Ambrose, forward Josh Locy, and Dillon
Brandon "played way above his head," Coach Michalski said. The fresh-
man hails from the same high school in Winchester, Va., (Shenandoah
Valley Christian Academy) that sent point guards John Stonestreet, '97, and
Jim Arnold, '98, to Bryan.
"Josh, in the second half of the season, emerged to be one of the top post
players in the conference," he said.
And Dillon "did a tremendous job on both ends of the floor. He became
the premier three-point shooter in the conference - he made over 100
threes this season."
He also noted the contribution of Blake Bohler ("a relentless senior-war-
rior) and Jonathan

electing not to return have put Bryan tennis Coach Bob Andrews into an unexpected rebuilding year, but he believes the teams he has
assembled have the potential for the future.
Senior Mike Sheddan and junior Courtney Roberts are the most experienced players, with two years of college
competition each on the men's and women's teams. Four freshmen men and three freshmen women are beginning
their first season of competitive tennis.
"Our new players definitely show potential, but they need court time and experience," Dr. Andrews said. "With
our small teams, they certainly will get the playing time and experience this year."
For the men, Michael Sheddan, who didn't play last year, returns for his third season. He will be joined by Terry
Hill, a junior, back for his second season. But the coach is concerned that Terry, a member of the Tennessee National

Coach Andrews said he is encouraged about the potential for the team and the athleticism of the freshmen par-
ticularly. "We are working very hard and will do our best to be competitive in the conference this year," he said.
Honor is Due
ryan College alumni have a rich her-
itage of distinguished service in the armed
forces of the United States of America. For
more than 70 years alumni, students, staff,
and faculty alike have served our beloved
country in the Coast Guard, Army, Navy,
Air Force, and Marines. Along with numer-
ous veterans who fought valiantly in foreign
lands, veterans to whom the terms Juno,
Iwo Jima, "Nuts," DMZ, Saipan, and Desert
Storm have significant meaning, Bryan also
has many fallen heroes. Heroes like USMC
Lt. Charles W. Shirley, '41, who gave his life
for his country in April of 1944 — just three
years after his graduation from Bryan
Bryan College alumni serve in every
branch of the military and may be found
dispersed throughout all ranks. From USMC
Brig. Gen. Mastin Robeson, '76, who is the
acting assistant division commander of the
Second Marine Division, to Army PFC Terry
Hill, '05, who is preparing to enter officer
candidate school this summer, Bryan alumni
are serving around the globe. Currently,
many of Bryan's finest are being called up
from the reserves to active duty and many
are being deployed to the Middle East.
Our goal over the coming months is to
do something significant to honor our alum-
ni who have served our country and its citi-
zens with distinction. As you may know,
many of our records were destroyed due to
heat, smoke, and the subsequent water
damage that occurred during the fire of
February 2000. Here is where you can help
us give honor where honor is due: Do you
know of a Bryan alumnus /alumna or a for-
mer faculty/staff member who is a veteran,
or do you know of a Bryan alumnus /alum-
na who is serving in the military? Would
you take a moment and let us know?
Here is what we need:
• Class Year (if possible)
• Branch of Service
• Final or Current Rank
• Years of Service
You can reach us by e-mail at
email@example.com; by calling toll-free 1-
800-55-BRYAN, or by snail mail at Bryan
College Alumni Ministries, P.O. Box 7000,
Dayton, TN 37321.
It is our desire to make sure no one is
missed. Any help you can give your alumni
association will be greatly appreciated.
May God continue to bless you as you
serve Him, and may God continue to bless
America! lift ^r
